I'm bringing a UK market 1976 Honda CB250 G5 back with me to the States, and I want to know what classes I'll race in at an AHRMA or USCRA race. I looked at the rulebook(s), but I had a hard time finding my class. Can you help? [?]

The year of the bike would typically fall into a "Super Vintage" class....but typically Super Vintage classes run minimum 350cc bike...usually of a pretty highly modified type.

my guess is for the uscra, youd have to be indexed in somehow. if they let yo run it at all. the cb250's a cool little bike. ahrma, you may not have a competitive class to run it in. with it being that "modern" and little. but i honestly have no idea.

you could also actually try over on the uscra board. not sure if there is a link to it, but race-uscra.com. i have no idea how youll find out about it with ahrma. they have regional reps you could try asking.

Thanks guys!! Looks like I'll have to keep the 250 street and go with a 350/360.... that seems easier and more competitive.

lean more toward a 350 as it will be applied toward more classes than a 360 between the various organizations.

Pip,
I've imported bikes from the UK, and at the costs I was dealing with the bike would have to be pretty significant in order to have it be worthwhile... a CB250 doesn't seem that exotic to make it worthwhile. If you have a cheap in (ie: military cargo flights, Indian freighter, friend at the customs office) then why don't you bring in some trick hardware instead. I brought in a RGV250 and ZXR400, but the costs were probably 2500$ per bike and I handled all the customs and legalities myself... I doubt I'd ever do it again it was so much work.

I would like to hear how you are bringing the bikes in though!

Peace
Karl

I'm in the Military, and they are going to ship the bike for me.
